How to Make THC e Liquid

thc e liquidHow to Make THC e liquid

Liquid THC is awesome. Especially if you’re sick of using a dry herb vaporizer and dig using a vape pen to get stoned. Now because we don’t like spending money on an expensive vials of THC e liquid and someone reached out asking us how to make THC e juice we did some research. We found the best THC e liquid recipes online, combined them, experimented with them and came up with what we think is the best and easiest liquid marijuana recipe available.

This process produces some incredibly potent thc e liquid from loose leaf cannabis. You can use shake or already vaped bud (AVB). If you go the vaped bud route you’ll need to use 3-4x more AVB than unvaped bud to make a good quantity of oil. You can also use the Rosin Technique and use rosin with this recipe. If that’s the case skip stage one.

The process of making THC e liquid involves two stages—create a potent cannabis concentrate then transform that concentrate into an e-liquid (the same kind found in e-cigarettes, without the nasty nicotine). In order to make marijuana e liquid you’ll need:

  • A minimum of 3.5 grams of high quality loose leaf bud.
  • EJ Mix. This a special food grade mix of Propylene Glycol used to transform cannabis concentrates into a liquid form that’s less viscous than traditional e-liquid bases used in most cannabis e-juice recipes.
  • High Proof (190+) Grain Alcohol (Everclear, the booze—not the band, will work).
  • Blunt Tip Syringes. These things are essential, dude.
  • Some dropper bottles (these cobalt blue ones work well and prevent sunlight exposure)
  • Optional: Lorann Hard Candy Flavoring Oils (this is what e-cigarette liquid dudes use, we recommend all-natural weed flavored e juice.)
  • Coffee Filters
  • Parchment Paper
  • 2 Mason jars. Larger jars are better for making and storing a lot of cannabis e liquid. Opaque jars better prevent light from degrading the marijuana e liquid.
  • A pot large enough to submerge half a mason jar.
  • A hot plate—no flames, dude.

To make THC e liquid you’ll need a very well ventilated work space. Use only an electric stove. Don’t use a gas stove and definitely do NOT make it near an open flame. Don’t blow yourself up, man. Making marijuana e juice ain’t worth dying over, dude.

Make your own THC e liquid from loose leaf cannabis


Grind your bud and place it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Preheat the oven to 220. Bake the bud for about twenty-five to forty-five minutes until it turns light brown.

Once the bud’s been decarboxylated place it into a mason jar. Add enough alcohol to cover the bud by a half-inch.

Seal the jar and store it in a cool dark place for at least 48 hours (longer the better) giving it a light shake each day.

After at least 48 hours has passed remove the jar grab the other mason jar, 2 syringes and a coffee filter.

Unscrew the blunt tip needles from the syringes. Remove the plunger from one and insert half a coffee filter. Use the other syringe to draw liquid from the first mason jar and squirt it into the syringe containing the filter. Replace the plunger and squirt it through the filter into the second jar. Repeating for remaining thc e juice in the jar.

Seal the jar and put it in the freezer for 48 hours allowing particles to settle.

Remove the jar from the freezer and filter it using the same steps above.

Allow the cannabis e liquid to come up to room temperature before proceeding. Seriously, heating cold alcohol can be dangerous.

Remove the lid and place the jar in a pot on the stove filled with enough water to cover half the jar. Turn on the stove vent and simmer the water watching closely until all the alcohol boils off.

Once the booze is gone you’ll have about a gram of dark, thick cannabis oil…ready to be transformed into liquid THC.

AK-47 potTHC e Liquid STAGE 2

Place the jar containing the thc liquid in a pot on the stove. Fill the pot with a little water and bring it to just under a boil.

Using a new syringe measure 1mL of EJ Mix for every gram of concentrate inside the jar. Feel free to experiment with a little less or little more EJ Mix to alter potency.

Using your pot, fill it again to halfway with water with your mason jar containing the oil inside. I recommend putting a knife or fork at the bottom of one side of the jar so that the liquid will pool to one side (making removing it easier)

Simmer for about five minutes until all the oil is dissolved into the EJ Mix.

Using a syringe transfer the solution into a dropper bottle for storage.

Mix in a tiny bit of flavor if you want. We don’t recommend it because prefer all-natural marijuana flavored e juice.

And your weed e liquid is done, man. You can store your little vial of marijuana e juice for 1 to 2 years in the dark at room temperature, mail it to us, or vape it all right now.

    I followed this process almost exactly and no or very little effects. Got any tips on what went wrong. I started with fairly strong bud but never felt the effects. Maybe decarb was a little too low temp 209? Or is my vape pen not strong enough?

  2. Mike

    I tried this method as well, I have a powerful Vape device as well as a weak one. I tried in both and I got very mild effects no matter how much I vaped 🙁

  3. KillaSkrilla

    Dayum you gotta damn near be a chemist to do this shit, this makes cooking meth in Breaking Bad look easy… Im good, rather just buy some ready made one if i can find some. Thanks for the guide though…

  4. Kyle

    The fuck? Im not no chemist

  5. Bdc151

    dope recipe made 60ml from 16gs of product… I soaked 14 decarbed and 2 more for flavor work like a charm potent like dabs I flavored mine blueberry and I only soaked 24 hrs in everclear boiled out then added 50/50 pg vg mix cooked another 30min and let cook and blueberry candy flavor added bomb ass juice I switched up afew parts like the decarb I did 45min and 250f more effective than temp mentioned and basically came close to his way with certain twists and turns from previous failure I’ve learned and this shit got me on cloud 9 full of clouds its bomb couched me hard

  6. Кгыешс

    Do u put VG or no VG??? Cannot get it

  7. InkedMayhem

    Bdc151 can you shoot me a message?

  8. deebo4200

    I did it the way laid out on thestoners cookbook using cheese cloth 100% pg and only cooking for 15 mins and i ended up with 23ml of passable ejuice passable meaning it gets me about as high as a joint of thsame stuff as it was made from after about ten large evape hauls i am thinking after reading a bunch of articles wher the mistakes are and why i didnt get that super high i was promised so on my next batch i am going to cook the weed in a foil sealed pyrex dish for 40 mins at 220. Soak it for 24 hrs then boil it down an inch with grass still in to further draw out thc add more G A filter with cheese cloth then again though coffee filter cook it down as much as i can without ruining it then 20 ml of 70/30 vg/pg hoping it will be more potant and slightly thicker then the step by step i used i will update the results any advice would be welcome thanx

  9. deebo4200

    I was also thinking about a batch useing the no alcohal press way

  10. drankofdank

    In case people are having trouble sourcing Everclear there is an online store that sells 190 grain alcohol specifically for cannabis concentrates. It ships through FedEx right to your door.

  11. kid_ENT

    ^^ culinary solvent suff is legit btw they ship quick, they make you be21 to sign for it from the fedex man. and anybody not getting good results iZ because the bud you are starting with doesn’t have enough thc in it or it’s been decarbed wrong/too much/ or even too little. if you use good bud and decarb it and extract it right, you will be able to medicate reliably. I used to dab until i got good at making my own liquid, if you are a daily toker, it is an obvious better choice.

  12. SimplyInquiring

    I am extremely excited about venturing into the “E-Juice” production. I agree, being a daily toker its the only choice. I have ordered a magical butter machine and intend on making my liquid using the process they recommended. My only question being a health conscious individual is, does anyone have any experience or has anyone experimented with the production of e juice without “harmful”chemicals; particularly propylene glycol which is derived from petroleum? I know that companies like Virgin Vapor are advertising organic e juice (nicotine) that seems to substitute PG for organic Vegetable Glycerin. I’m simply interested in producing quality thc liquid that is safe and discreet. Thanks in advance!

  13. Jimmy

    I use a db mix and wax or shatter and double boil it in a jar and use a sub ohm twmp control snow wolf with a tobecco mini super tank . I only make about a ml or two with a gram of material and it last me two days

  14. Hateslayer

    Those having issues might consider trying the no alcohol method. You basically decarb and mix with a PG/VG mix and slow cook for 6-8 hours agitating the jar every 20-30 min. I have done this with regular old brick weed to dank nugs and the potency is usually not far short of the original bud. I also like to get a high concentration of CBD vape juice and mix it with my own making a very medicinal e juice. I know that the alcohol method is more efficient but I have better luck my way.

  15. Steve G

    Here’s a method to process a Vegetable Glycerin and BHO e-juice, without using any alcohol or emulsifiers…..

  16. JimBeanz

    Don’t do any of this …
    Decarb is for edibles only
    Just use a slow cooker and fuck it hard

  17. Damian

    Decarboxylation is for everything; it removes all impurities and some plant products while converting THCa into active thc and cannibinoids. If you aren’t doing this, your product isn’t as good as it could be and contains plant phenols and other contaminants which can be carcinogenic.
    Always decarb, no.matter what you’re making even if it was properly cured.
    I’m about to experiment with the recipe.
    I’ve read that the reason you can’t use 100% vg is that it seperates but I have no experience there.

  18. Itzdabear

    Whatever method I use I want a flavor mine. I can’t find any ratio to know how much flavoring to use I’ve got the candy flavoring drops if someone could tell me I’d sure appreciate it.

  19. Spitefire088

    Try just throwing it into straight pg. Since it thc is fat soluble and vg is kinda fat based. Read on amazon comment of someone using just straight vg poring the goods into the vg and baking it. Kinda like butter.

  20. Itzdabear

    debo4200…. How did it go your way?

    And, again how much Lorane flavering do I add?

  28. Afroman420

    I was like fuck this so i went back to rollin up

  29. Afroman420

    Too much work

  30. Frankie

    Can u use 100% propylene glycol for the mix for vape juice

  31. AjaxTheOtter

    The EJ Mix link takes you to buy pure PG, not an EJ Mix, so yes, it can be done with 100% PG. I will soon be experimenting with a 50/50 PG/VG blend, as pure PG isn’t as viscous. As the alcohol evaporates out, you’ll know you’re almost done when the concentrate oil starts separating form the residual water and forms what at first look like dark bubbles. As the alcohol continues to evaporate at this point, you’ll see the brownish oil sitting in the water. Finish evaporating off the water, then mix in your PG/VG while still in the double boiler/jar and agitate occasionally over the next few minutes, and the oil will all have been dissolved into the PG.

  32. Frankie

    Last week i received my first bottle of cannabis oil . Used for under your tounge couple drops and your there well in a few hours. But nevertheless. ….i thought i would try vaporizing a drop or two. Damn it all to hell where have you been all my life … damn straight Jack! ! Since i can no longer smoke cigarettes i vape tobacco. .i need a vaporizing system for weed bought a vaporizing machine excellent. But wanted to try a recipe for weed drops for vaporizing. Low and behold i can and do vaporize.the cannabis oil. 9% thc. Two big puffs sometime three and im freaking fried. I am so glad tried it out cuz it freakin works big time order higher thc content next script. Enjoy .

  33. Frankie

    Any comments would be helpful about smoking cannabis oil via.vape pen

  34. Brian Helip

    Good day,
    have been using this recipe but on a larger scale as I have CML and do about 1/2 oz of bud a month and convert into MMJ oil and yes I do have my MMJ ticket in Cali and now PA .
    does it work, yes if you do not put to much heat to it and this is where people are over heating and destroying the THC and therefore no effect. Trying to use a meat thermometer to control the temp. at 130* and no higher you should be good to go.

  35. Itzdabear

    Brian Helip,
    Lost, temperature at 130*? Are we talking about carbonization?

  36. Steven Riggs

    100% Vegetable Glycerin (safe to smoke) available at Walgreens.
    190 proof Everclear available at BevMo
    Coffee filter works great.
    1/1 mix works Okay for me.
    Adjustable vent and power Vape pens work best.

  37. Zep4

    I’m scared to heat the alcohol & I hate the throat hit of pg. I want to do the recipe with 100% veg letting the alcohol evaporate naturally. Will that work?

  38. zabong

    Getting it over 200f makes the bud vapor off in your oven. Don’t do it. Use your shatter or bho and a 3:2 ratio to pg, heat until mixed then vape.. Keep below 160f. I get clear honey oil and vape away.

  39. Scoot

    IS decarb needed Damian? Doesn’t that happen during the vaping process? I mean, we don’t decarb weed before putting into a regular vape do we?

  40. zabong

    You don’t need to decarb it, you aren’t eating it. WHY would you want to do that for vaping ? It’s a bad idea.

  41. Frankie

    I also bought the 9%thc drops for under your tounge it does work vaping 3 takes fried next time I get a higher thc Content thc and I’m set

  42. Frankie

    P.s. I also was extremely surprised that the canabis oil works for vaping but like I said in earlier comment I bought the 9% oil for under your tongue tried vaping and damn where have u been all my life only 3 puffs and I’m done …my next order will be 26% canabis oil and I can’t wait to try that . Damn straight jack it really works great.

  43. Billie

    I thimk this process is a good process, however, i would Not yse the everclear. On youtube, you can find a video for e-liquid, published by a man in the UK… personally, I Prefer That method… no alcohol involved. Everclear is nit redily available in Michigan, so i use the vg/pg method. 22 ml vp:10 ml gp, 99.9 foodgrade (both products) and 4 grams of High Quality, Decarboxilated herb… i decarb at 220°F, 25 minutes in sealed pyrex, do not disturb, 20 minutes while cooling. And cheesecloth.
    FLAVORING: Personally, I use pure candy extracts, which are quite strong. For the 28 ml return from this procedure, i would start with 1-2 drops Max… try it, you can ALWAYS Add flavor… removing it, is impossible

  44. dude

    Will someone explain what the purpose of the alcohol his?

  45. Anonymous

    Boys jst use kief instead of buds,shit happens when you use the best bits!!

  46. Marklar22

    Uh, for safety concerns, when you explain early about using electric heat, you say:
    “Don’t use a gas stove and definitely do make it near an open flame.”
    It’s definitely a typo but it could lead someone to going about it wrong and getting hurt.
    To all: OPEN FLAME = BAD!
    Thanks for the great info otherwise.

  47. T5003

    Billie could you be more specific on the tube video? Title, etc. ever clear also is not available in Ohio. And I would like to try your method. Thanks.

    OMG i did this with a half gallon of Kleen Xtract i found hidden from myself in my workshop and the results were amazing. I can get everclear where i live now but couldn’t when i bought the kleenxtract online.

  50. Duo

    Used shatter and ejuice without heat. Results: Eh
    Bout to try heating them both slowly and see what results I get

  51. Paul

    I’m in the process of doing this now.. 10g of ground bud (incredible bulk) using alcohol (99.9% pure) cooked the herb for 30mins at 220°c . It’s been soaking for 2 days, will be going in the freezer later today.. will update with results Newcastle UK

  52. TeaSeah

    Can anyone tell me if the vapor is completely odorless?

  53. Itzdabear

    Paul, good, I’m interested.

    Also, I’ve had to leave mine sealed and in the freezer for months. Sidetracked, problem?

  54. Gee

    The way I do it and trust me gets you stoned is by using 3 parts VG and 7 parts Propylene glycol ratio of 5ml liquid to 1gram herb.

    4grams x 5 = 20ml, (14ml VG 6ml PG )

    Cook herb in oven covered in foil for 30-40 mins, remove let cool then place herb in Mason Jar containing the liquid and mix well.
    Place Jar into hot water bath and shake and swirl every 20 mins. Continue this for 2 1/2 – 3 hrs. Keep lid on throughout. Once done allow to cool place contents in a strainer coffee filter paper and squeeze/extract liquid. Add flavour I’ve added banana and milkshake vape concentrate. Then cape and get fucked! Best and loving it.

  55. JG

    Everyone else seems to think 7 VG to 3 PG ratio is the way to go. Yours isnt a typo is it?

    Also, why not decarb in the mason jar in the oven directly?

    Thanks for the discussion.


  56. Jummy

    Two questions. Using the newer recipe with pg 400 and10gr of 8 miles high. How much vape oil can I expect after adding ejmix and will it produce the same high as the flower.

  57. Melrose927

    What are you, 12? Is it really necessary to say “dude” every other word?

  58. Jeff

    Can you tell me where to buy thc vape oil already made ?


  59. Diamond Roll

    Waste of time

  60. Wesson

    I can’t make fuck shit I tried to make 3 times but still no effect!!

  61. Ogkushington840

    Use wax or rosin and do the second part with the pg/vg mix but skip the bud and everlear part. If you can make rosin with a press it makes a more potent oil. YouTube can show you how to press rosin. Using wax or rosin will get you the desired effect and bad ass ganja e juice.

  62. Julius

    I do as you said but me too , get very mild effect. I don’t feel the THC. The power is gone…. Have any suggestions?

  63. J.J

    Why do all of that. Just buy 1 gram shatter mix it with a wax liquidizor throw in some terp sauce for flavor and your done! Easy as that amazon has all the items you need minus the shatter!

  64. Frankiemaxx

    If your in Canada..Google oranje pharma concentrates they Have the best thc juice available..

  65. scottish stoner

    i grind down 7gs and bake for 30 mins on a low heat. i then take the weed put it in a jar and add 110ml of pg and put it in a pot of boiling water for 2 and a half hours. once thats done i take the contents on and put it in a 50ml syringe with a couple of filters in the bottom of it. i then squeeze all the juices out into a 100ml bottle. i them add 40ml of the liquid into another 2 100ml bottles and top it up with vg and viola around 250ml of real good weed juice that gets me shitfaced

  66. James PB

    Crock pot. 5 to 2 Dope to VG ratio inba mason jar. 24 hours on low. Cheesecloth. Done.

    No Everclear step necessary. VG contains fat and alchohol. All you need.

    Put a cloth on the bottom of the crock while cooking.

  67. James PB

    You still have to decarb in the oven, though.

  68. deebo4200

    Hey all I haven’t looked at this board in a long time I did it once more didn’t work gave up lol can’t afford to keep blowing a half o on nothing great so sorry I’m just smokin weed tell I can buy it in stores here in alberta

  69. Michael Miller




  70. This guy

    Starting from bud is the thoughest part. Get good at making extracts and the rest takes care of itself. If you dont want to waste your money starting from bud, buy shatter, keif, wax etc. and start at step 2. Decarboxilating and winterizing are steps for refinement of your extract between steps 1 and 2.
    If you start with an extract just mix in with vg/pg blend and heat it up for 30 mins and stir.
    I like to heat my mix low and slow at 200f for up to 60mins.

  71. J trees

    In response to the last comment.. What is the appropiate ML for vg / pg mixture you use?

  72. Rob

    I made a great batch of VG Tincture in Magic Butter machine using 2 cups of VG and 1 ounce decarbed weed. I used the stronger tincture time and heat on machine. This stuff is good and strong when added to any food or drink. So I took a 1/2 cup of this VG tincture and added 1/4 of PG and tried in my vaporizer and it taste like shit and takes about 12 to 15 hits to catch a light buzz and I recently got some medical Marijuana ones that kick my ass in 3 pulls and great flavor. What am I doing wrong with my homemade juice? Thank you

  73. John

    It will work way better for vaping/smoking if you don’t decarb.
    You decarb for eating, not smoking.

  74. VEssa

    Can I use Ejuice already flavored?

  75. David

    Dude fix your website “use only an electric stove. Don’t use a gas stove and definitely([ do make it near an open flame]). Don’t blow yourself up, man. Making marijuana e juice ain’t worth dying over, dude.”

    It will work way better for vaping/smoking if you don’t decarb.
    You decarb for eating, not smoking.

    Hey guys, what do you think about that? this have sense, the e-cigar applies temperature to evaporate

  77. Geo

    Dabbing with enail, I dab at 620c, most vape pens won’t go that high. I ALWAYS decarb for vape juice, whether that be weed, shatter, wax etc. Oh, a wee tip, fractionated coconut oil is way better than pg/vg for mixing concentrates. And forget ej mix, its unecessary . 👍

  78. danny

    I dont think you should heat the weed to 220. Because thc evaporates at 212 degrees. That is boiling temperature. You dont want to get your butter over 212 either or your cookies wont get you high. I think using a bain marie helps to keep the right temperature. Just saying if you are going to get it to 220 maybe it should be in a bong.

  79. danny

    Actually THC has a boiling point of 200°C (392°F). However before the THC boils, other parts of the oil evaporate and boil.

    Here are some important temperatures: At 21°C (70°F) the most volatile terpenoids start to evaporate, lending a pungent odor to the air.

    At 31°C (87°F) the less volatile terpenoids start to evaporate, lending the air even more pungent odors.

    At 39°C (102°F ) virtually all of the terpenoids undergo evaporation fairly rapidly.

    At 50°C (122°F) THC-Acid decarboxylates as the water molecule held in the carbonate form evaporates. This activates the THC.

    At 66°C (150°F) Cannabidiol (CBD) melts and starts to evaporate.

    At 185°C (365°F) Cannibinol (CBN) boils.

    At 200°C (392°F) THC boils. Clear vapor from a vaporizer.

  80. loren

    can i lightly mix it with regular ejuice at the end?

  81. Chris

    Okay guys go online buy this thing called the magic butter machine, it’s endorsed by high times and Tommy Chong so you know it’s good. Order this product from vapuer clear it’s specifically designed for making thc oil. Follow the directions of the magic butter once you have your thc infused oil set it aside In a glass beaker. In another glass beaker place 5 grams of what ever concentrate you have then and 5 grams of the th c oil you just made. Heat up till everything is blended well. Then follow the instructions that come with the vapuer clear. You will have a amazing oil.

  82. Crystal

    Do not mix PG and VG with MJ. It will separate. Buy wax liquidizer ( if you want flavor. Only mix PG and if you do add flavor it has to be water soluble, and PG based only. Anything with oil will not be safe. Not saying vaping is safe anyways. But oil will stay in your lungs. Wax is the best way to make vape I think.
